A 19-year old man is locked up Saturday, accused of molesting a 12 year old girl.

FOX23 discovered the 12-year-old girl told police she first met the man through social media in December.

FOX23 talked with police about how they caught the suspect.

Facebook, the website police say helped acquaint the two, was also the site that led to Enriquez's arrest Friday at Cinemark in South Tulsa.

Some parents tell FOX23 that social media is too dangerous.

"We don't allow our twelve year old to be on Facebook at all," said Kenneth Adams, a neighbor of Enriquez.

When FOX23 told Adams that his neighbor is accused of molesting a girl he met on Facebook, he said "I’m shocked.I’m shocked. I didn't look at him like that."

Police records show Juan Enriquez began talking to the 12 year old on Facebook in December.

The conversation led to a movie date that turned to molestation.

The girl told police Enriquez said he wouldn't take her home unless she performed sexual acts.

Police caught Enriquez when they posed as the girl on Facebook.

They set up another movie date at the Cinemark and arrested Enriquez when he arrived.

FOX23 tried to talk to Enriquez's family.

They said their attorney asked them not to say anything but they were visibly upset about the arrest.

"It just scares the hell out of me. I have three girls," the neighbor, Adams, told FOX23.
Jail records show Enriquez is being held without bond.
